Last night's Leafs game was a fun one. The team was good, and William Nylander was even better in what was most definitely the best game of his young career so far.

After a late third-period rally against the Lehigh Valley Phantoms yesterday, the Toronto Marlies had their work cut out for them once again on Saturday afternoon. This time, they took on the Providence Bruins, who started the year off slow but have been one of the league's best teams over the past few months.

The Buffalo Sabres lose out on a lot of things. They lost out on Connor McDavid, they lost out on Mike Babcock, and they've lost pretty much every game they've played in the past several years. Those hoping for the tank to roll steady, though, know that the Sabres have been relatively good at securing rare victories against the Blue and White. Tonight, the two teams square off once again.
